Abstract

The prevalent approach to understanding of and clinical intervention in the process of mourning employs a model based on stages of bereavement. This paper suggests a theoretical conception that is not tied to a fixed order of emotional states. Two dimensions--closeness of relationship and mourner's perception of preventability of the death--are identified as prime predictors of the intensity and duration of bereavement.
